Genk vs Charleroi Prediction & Betting tips
Racing Genk and Sporting Charleroi meet each other on matchday four. Two teams that have the ambition to finish in the top six. Genk furiously started the competition while Charleroi could only get three points.
Seven points, two goals, three points: a clinical Genk won with a bred B-team with 0-2 at Ostend and did not miss the train in the Jupiler Pro League. The whore mood of the Limburgers did not lie. In the middle of a difficult period with the European tax, the win by the sea was a pure bonus. Clement plant to continue to rotate. ‘It is a serious consideration every game, who can play’, according to the coach.
Genk had the difficult trip to Ostend last weekend. The level of the first half was not good. No chance was scored on both sides. Fifteen minutes before the end, Genk reached the ball after a questionable handball. Leandro Trossard dropped, Oostende broke. The raid Ruslan Malinovskyi put the dots on the i with a twenty-five-meter glare.
The hooker mood at Genk after the match did not lie. ‘It was our sixth race in three weeks time after a short preparation. Because of the stiff field and the warm weather, this party was extra stressful. I’m glad we came here to win, because I do not see many teams doing this season, “says coach Philippe Clement. ‘Whether the result of this European campaign was less important today? No. My boys are meant to win everything. A training party yourself. ‘
In Charleroi they are aware that they should have already had more than three points. They were too short against Antwerp and they repeated that to Anderlecht. Two lost home games that might weigh heavily in the final bill. The automatisms are there, the team is there but it is too easy to give away goals.
Charleroi was visited last weekend by Anderlecht, who nevertheless played the first two match days. But Charleroi left no room for Anderlecht to play football and that was the right tactic. A big five minutes before rest was the price: Ognjen Vranjes let himself be put in the luren by Cristian Benavente and Kaveh Rezaei neatly finished his cross. Earned advantage, but then the light went out at Parfait Mandanda. He tried to get a completely harmless ball on the back line from the feet of Landry Dimata with a penalty as a result. In the second half, Charleroi missed a giant chance and the lid was still on the nose.
Against Anderlecht, Charleroi goalkeeper Mandanda committed a stupid penalty error and in the second goal he did not communicate with Martos. Charleroi was just looking for a new goalkeeper to replace the injured Nicolas Penneteau and now the bullet is through the church: today Rémy Riou signs a contract with the Carolos. The Frenchman is transfer free after he broke his contract with the Turkish Alanyaspor a few days ago because he was not paid there.
